Chama ice cave

Chama ice cave is situated in Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province, in the middle of Zard-Kuh Bakhtiari Mountain in Zagros range.

Iran (IMNA) – Iran is home to amazing natural beauties that are not found anywhere else. For example it is somehow strange to see ice and snow at the peak of the summer heat; however, you can find it in Chama ice cave, which is located 25 kilometers from Chelgerd village, in Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province.

This cave is considered as one of the biggest sources of fresh water. As its name shows, it is a cave covered with snow and ice. The thin icicles of the cave provide a charming view for visitors. Some parts of the snowy areas have the height of about 50 meters. 

This region is cool even during the hot summer days, because these snow and ice are not seasonal and have become permanent. If you go to this area in summer, be careful not to walk on the ice since the thickness of ice may have been decreases due to the hot weather.

There is a spring inside this ice cave, which flows into the Kuhrang dam which is one of the most interesting tourist attractions of the province.

The best time to visit the ice cave is in spring and summer, because the area has a cold and Alpine climate. If you want to experience the coldest point in the hottest season of the year, you should not miss Chama ice cave.
